Those crafty Japanese toy inventors are at it again:
I definitely would try and build my own before I’d drop Besides the few custom parts, it looks like you could get most of the kit from Home Depot. $361 USD (28,350 YEN) on this!

If that were my setup, id be remotely detonating it from around a corner at the very least. I also wouldn’t have the power all connect up to it while I was in the setup process.
